Get an introduction to the beloved bluebirds with Naturalist Emma Lorusso and Master Naturalist graduate Ed Boisits. Bluebird populations were on the decline since the late 1800s, but are making a comeback, partially due to the increased amount of bluebird boxes that have been built and set up by people!  Join us to learn about basic bluebird behavior including breeding, competition, diet and migration.  Following this talk you will have the chance to build your own bluebird box to take home.  
Please register with how many boxes you would like to build.  Registration limited.

Registration Fee: 
$10 per box non-members/$3 per box Friends of Goodwin members
